No, it's the alphabetical order ;)

Hmm, why don't you order a Debian, Fedora or OpenSUSE DVD somewhere? There are 
some vendors who sell those for a few bucks (e.g http://on-disk.com/). 
OpenSUSE and Mandriva are also available as boxed versions with a manual and 
commercial support from Novell/Mandriva.
